We seek an outstanding scholar of Latin American and Caribbean Studies with demonstrable commitment to interdisciplinary scholarship and excellence in teaching.

PhD in a relevant discipline must be in hand by time of appointment and must have been completed no earlier than September 2014. The position is renewable annually for a maximum of three years.
